Hudson Chorale Concert: Hensel, Vivaldi, Mozart

Hudson Chorale Concert: Hensel, Vivaldi, Mozart “What is a human?” Come hear Hudson Chorale give Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel’s answer in a performance of her sublime cantata Hiob, with text from The Book of Job. This work has been all but silenced for two centuries by the prominence of her famous brother. We delight in contributing to Hensel’s long overdue appreciation as a major artist of the nineteenth century. Hear the exquisite melodies and exciting fugues of Mozart’s Vesperae solennes de Confessore (“Solemn Vespers”), a work whose intricate and profound beauties have been beloved since 1790.
